One of the big submission threats a top player can use against half guard is the Kimura. It isolates the guard players best defender, and the position itself is draining to be in once you go cross body and drop your weight on them.
There are some tweaks that need to be made to get the most out of this Kimura. In particular, we want to focus on bringing the opponent’s elbow to their ear, as we are limited in the amount of rotation we can perform and top pressure in half guard.
